Stunning on so many levels: a perfect balance of big-picture strategic context and minute-to-minute sweat-dripping action; economical yet eloquent character portraits of the key players - Allied and Axis, admirals and seamen - and a writing style which really ought to be taught in schools. The Pedestal story (and that of one of the key players, tanker Ohio) has been added-to, enhanced and illuminated further since Shankland and Hunter's publication but none of the catalogue, in my view, come within cooee of "Malta Convoy" for the sheer visceral vividness of your reading imagination 'being there',
This is essentially a factual account of one of many daring operations carried out during WW11. the beginning of the book is a little slow because the authors are re telling real events and building the background. I defy anyone however to reach the end of this book and not to have a racing heart and a lump in their throat. It is inconceivable to me now that Captain Mason and his merchant marine crew would re board a derelict oil tanker under such circumstances. It is more than the relief of the besieged island of Malta, it shows the resilience and courage of ordinary men deprived of sleep and under constant attack by sea and air. The book also demonstrates what a close run thing that dreadful conflict was, and how sometimes sheer bravado overcame a vastly superior force, just because they dared to try.
